Cut and pile carpets are the best selling type of carpet. It looks more luxurious than other types of carpeting and resists crushing more than most other types of carpet. The four times of cut and pile carpeting are Saxony, with two or more fibers twisted together. Saxony carpets show footprints and vacuum marks. Another is textured Saxony, a carpet with a soft feel underfoot that is popular in family rooms, dens, and kids’ rooms. Textured Saxony absorbs tracks and vacuum marks better than plain Saxony. Velvet plush carpeting is much softer and level and although it will show footprints and vacuum marks, it often has the most upscale appearance. Frieze carpeting is highly twisted cut pile designed for high traffic areas, designed to last longer and show less marks than other cut and piles.
